Good Morning,
 I am using a continuous form in Access 2002. When I scroll down the form it blinks.  This is maddening. The form only has a header and the detail section only has two text boxes.  One of the text box's control source is a hyperlink field, and the other is a text field from a table.

Is there any way to get this form to stop blinking?  I am in a hurry again, so points R' us.

Thanks,

Does this happen on all continuous forms you have?   In other MDB's you ?  I assume you are using the mouse / scroll bar to scroll ... as opposed say to the arrow key?

Eureka! I have found it.  The form was created using the Wizard.  the Background was actually a bitmap image.  In the form properties, scroll down to 'Picture' and delete the "(bitmap)" reference, and the background goes away, as does the problem.

Thanks for your interest.

Gee ... that was too easy ... didn't really answer the question, but ... it DOES put me over 50K points to Master rating, lol.  THANK-YOU.  It's going to be a good day.

Not sure I would have immediately thought about a bitmap being the problem.  Won't forget it now :-}
